If you’ve got a taste for the finer things in life and an unrivalled flair for theatrics, the newly opened QT Newcastle has the perfect job for you. What is the almost too-good-to-be-true role, you may ask? The Hotels and Resorts group is looking for their next QT Connoisseur. All a part of the celebrations taking place in light of QT Newcastle’s recent opening, and the team are hoping to find the perfect person with an appreciation for luxurious touches and ultimate comfort, whose career goals include sleeping on the job, taste testing and throwing theatrically flamboyant rooftop parties.
The lucky connoisseur will be given the unique privilege to be the hotel’s “Chief Tasting Officer” for the newly opened Jana Restaurant and Bar. The role involves tasting, with expert flair, every seasonal menu for one year. Head chef, Massimo Speroni’s take on modern Australian cuisine is mixed with Italian influence to create an approachable produce-led menu featuring unexpected twists on simple dishes. If it’s just so good you simply need to come back, don’t fret – you get four free meals, one every quarter!
The QT Connoisseur will also get to test out Rooftop by QT, where the hotel will throw a LIT welcome party for the new recruit and 40 friends! It’s all part of testing out the soon-to-be infamous rooftop, of course. In the role, the lucky applicant will enjoy insider access to the Japanese-inspired menu and the cocktail selection of their dreams! Boasting the largest whisky collection in Newcastle, the QT Connoisseur will also have the opportunity to taste test the rarest whisky in the city, if just cocktails won’t cut it.
Don’t think we’ve forgotten the best bit – sleeping! Once the party’s over, it’s time to bask in the luxury of QT Newcastle’s lavish The Clock Suite room. Suss the unique vibe of the room, test out the bath and fall into the heavenly depths of the QT Dream Bed. All that’s left to do is to dose off to sweet, sweet dreams, only to wake and realise that you’re not dreaming, this is your life!
